Topic: notification autoack


Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 22:13, on Zulip):

Okay so first question, I noticed as soon as I looked at my notification page that it has a lot of notifications chilling from issues / prs that have been closed for days

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 22:13, on Zulip):

wondering if it would make sense to automatically acknowledge issues / prs when they're closed

simulacrum (Feb 20 2020 at 22:48, on Zulip):

I think the current policy that we're trying to avoid heuristics entirely, pretty much. I think this one might work out in practice, but I would rather not do it.

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 22:52, on Zulip):

fair enough

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 22:53, on Zulip):

is there a framework for working with the notifications that triagebot is using that we could use to implement custom handling for our personal notification set?

simulacrum (Feb 20 2020 at 22:58, on Zulip):

Not currently, no, if I understand you correctly. It's in theory plausible to run triagebot yourself, but it would need some modifications for sure (we currently depend on a webhook, and you AFAIK can't set up those yourself)

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 22:59, on Zulip):

im probably abusing triagebot rn anyways, I don't really want it for notifications so much, though I do like that it makes that info public, so much as I want it to track inprogress work items

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 22:59, on Zulip):

but for me the github notifications UI is completely sufficient for keeping track of my notifications, though I'm not dealing with nearly the volume that david and others are I'm sure

simulacrum (Feb 20 2020 at 23:00, on Zulip):

I think that's a separate, though very important, goal

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 23:00, on Zulip):

agreed

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 23:00, on Zulip):

if there are plans to start an active work tracker with triage bot as well I'd be very interested in being involved

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 23:01, on Zulip):

I'm currently doing that with a github project board https://github.com/yaahc/prs/projects/1 but its painfully manual

simulacrum (Feb 20 2020 at 23:02, on Zulip):

fwiw, I think it would be very helpful if you wrote down (in an issue perhaps) your process and so forth

simulacrum (Feb 20 2020 at 23:02, on Zulip):

at least today part of the problem is that it's unclear which bits to automate

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 23:34, on Zulip):

simulacrum (Feb 20 2020 at 23:35, on Zulip):

Thanks! I'll try to reply sometime soon.

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 23:36, on Zulip):

no reply is really needed, but happy to hear feedback on various ideas I posted

simulacrum (Feb 20 2020 at 23:36, on Zulip):

yeah, I meant feedback / thoughts

Jane Lusby (Feb 20 2020 at 23:37, on Zulip):
